Dead Maze shuffles into the crowded zombie survival gamespace
It’s been years since slapping zombies into your game was a novel attraction, yet it still remains a popular feature for players and developers alike. With The Walking Dead still generating water cooler discussions and geeks dreaming of that glorious post-apocalyptic fantasy, it is to be expected that more games take a stab (and a slice and a shot) at this setting.
Enter Dead Maze, a massively multiplayer cooperative survival game that places a greater emphasis on players working together than against one another. The title, which is coming to Steam in early 2018, has a colorful isometric look and is chock-full of hundreds of items that can be used for crafting and fighting. Camps can be built, classes can be swapped, and zombie hordes can be feared when they come calling.
“With Dead Maze we wanted to try and do something different,” said Atelier 801 Co-Founder Jean-Baptiste Le Marchand, “an MMO where you have to work together in order to survive and restore civilization. Exploring, crafting, fighting; all of this is key, but you won’t last long on your own. We can’t wait for our community and players to get started.”
